Shops at Midtown donates optometrist’s chair to Miami Lighthouse for the Blind

The Shops at Midtown Miami has donated an optometrist’s chair to the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Recently, while looking through found objects left in former tenant locations, the Shops at Midtown Miami staff discovered something special. Buried among other assorted items was a fully functional optometrist’s chair and associated equipment.

After evaluating the item, it was determined the chair is worth over $8,000 and less than five years old. Contacting the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind, it was learned that the organization was in need of this equipment for their low vision doctor’s office.

The Shops at Midtown Miami is a supporter of Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Since the center’s inception in 2006, it has been the “Top Dog” sponsor and host of the annual “Walk, Waggle and Stroll” Dog Walk that takes place at the Shops at Midtown Miami every March. On Mar. 3, 2013 the Shops at Midtown Miami once again will welcome participants for the community-oriented event that gives back so much.
